In the northern hemisphere, summer solstice officially kicks off the summer. For countries on this side of the world, the longest day of the year falls between June 21st and 23rd – but in the upper regions of Norway, Sweden, and Finland, the “longest day” lasts well more than a day. Here, the sun circles the sky, never dipping below the horizon for weeks on end.
If you want to experience the white nights – to go on a hike, ski a slope, or just read a book outside in the middle of the night – head to these Nordic countries for the ultimate midnight sun road trip. Here’s the ultimate itinerary for you.
